My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I greet you with the greetings of peace. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
old faces belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger is His Messenger. May Allah gather us with him in gender? I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala and praise Him. We praise Allah with love and exaltation. Because this is the meaning of his hand is not just raw praise. It's praise or a sugar. Mama have Betty what Avi This is have,
Hamed refers to
thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala while loving him and exalting him and nobody else can be thanked this way besides Allah subhanho wa Taala That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says Alhamdulillah all praises belong to Allah, all praises belong to Allah, whether we praise Him or we don't praise Him, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala thanking him with love and and exaltation for decreeing upon us witnessing another thoroughly.
And another night from the months or another night from the nights of this particular month of Ramadan.
Allah has blessed us, and he's deserving of even more praise and thanks for allowing us to witness the 15th of the month. Yes, the month has reached.
We don't say it's peak because we still have the last 10 nights and the night of power. But the month has indeed reached the halfway mark. the halfway mark. law here we waited for it since last Ramadan
and slowly but surely it came.
And as it came, we've reached it's half.
And we ask Allah to grant us live to see its end. I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those freed from the Hellfire amine, and make us from amongst them with the spoon, the people of taqwa Ameen, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala
decree upon us to be from amongst those that will witness the night of power, I mean, and thus received the rewards greater than
1000 months greater than 83 years mean Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all Eva. My dear brothers and sisters in yesterday's program, as we discuss the incident of the elephant I promised to open today's program
with a discussion surrounding tauheed rubia or the tauheed
pertaining to the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah or tawheed in the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we said we will discuss this when we spoke about the famous words of Abdul muttalib when he said to abraha Allah in a little bit Europe and say America,
right when he said that, indeed this carrabba has a load and this load will protect it. Right and we and we spoke about how or the lesson of having strong belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala and we say that you and I have a greater right towards having greater belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala because we have complete tawheed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Unlike the correction This is the question that comes to mind, that how is it that the poorest believed in Allah in the way that they believed that they could purposefully speak to Abraham with confidence in this manner, yet, they still needed a prophet to be sent
To them, how is this possible? They believed in Allah. So why did they still need a prophet to be sent to them? In answer to this, my dear brothers and sisters, we must understand that though he comprises of three aspects, three aspects to hate a rubia which we spoke about the heat in the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and tauheed Ahluwalia, which is the unity
in terms of Allah worship or the heat of, of the worship of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And then tauheed Allah smell was the fact
believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala has names and qualities are specific to him subhanho wa Taala and nothing else. This is what towhead entails, to hit entails these three matters. The Quraysh only believed in one of these three matters. We're not saying that only these three types, we're saying tawheed comprises of these three aspects you cannot be said to have come to have to heat if you believe in one and deny the other two, or believe in two and deny the other one. If you deny one of the three, you will be a person who has entered the realm of shirk
and denied Allah subhanho wa Taala and associated partners unto Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quraysh they believed in one of these three aspects they believed in the Lordship of Allah. They did not dispute the Lordship they were not atheists. They were not upon the the argument of Iran when he he denied Allah subhanho wa Taala did not deny the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala but they denied the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and
they were not people of tawheed with regards to the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So why did they accept the Lordship of Allah? Firstly, how do we know that they believed in Allah as the Lord? Firstly, we have the story that we've just taken the statement of Abdullah Talib a polytheist, but his statement to abraha of his belief in Allah, there's Allah and He is the Lord of this house and he will protect it. Secondly, Allah tells us in his book, Allah tells us, whether inside the home and it will lay a colon Allah, that if you ask these polytheists these people who deny you and call you names or prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ask them who created the heavens and the earth? Immediately they will say Allah subhanho wa Taala created it. So they
believed in the Lordship of Allah. What is this lordship mean? What does Ruby mean?
Ruby or the Lordship of Allah and belief in his lordship pertains to you believing that Allah is the maker, the Sustainer, the marisha, the protector, the maker, the giver of life, the giver of death.
This is the Lordship of Allah, He created everything in creation.
And once they believed in the Lordship of Allah, they also committed shark in the Lordship of Allah, because they would ask idols for rain and for children, for example. And part of your belief in the Lordship of Allah is believing that it's only Allah who sends the rain. It is only Allah who gives you children. So even though they believed in Allah, their belief was polluted, they also have shaken this belief. But the point to note is, they were not atheists, nor did they deny Allah they believed in a supreme being in a divine being. Suppan, who was
once they had issues in the Lordship of Allah.
Those issues necessitated greater issues.
And those issues are related to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. For when they started
believing that other entities or these idols can be worshipped for children can be worshipped for rain, or they could slaughter animals to these idols. They associated partners to Allah in terms of his worship, in terms of his worship, because his worship, slaughtering an animal is worship as well. So they, in essence, what they did was they associated partners and to align the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to read came to fix their belief in rubia and invite them
tauheed Aloha, invite them to tauheed Aloha, right? This unit in Allah subhanho wa Taala is worship that we worship none but Allah. We worship none but Allah, as we believe no one else is the maker the nourishment, the Sustainer, the giver of life and death and the protector and so on and so forth. We worship none but Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why Allah sing to them a prophet. They were people of hilke Yes, they believed in Allah. But that Oh, he'd had many issues. Allah subhanho wa Taala never sent any messenger, except with the same message. In terms of theology in terms of Akita and belief. Every Prophet came with the message of tawheed Lulu, he came with the message of
tawheed which comprises of these three or rubia alluvia. And smell was too fat meaning belief in our last names and attributes. But the focus was UI. Yeah, every profit luckily.
enough for me for call. Yeah, call me a Buddha la mela, common Illa.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed, We sent the first messenger who was the first messenger who had a Salah, the first Prophet was Adam alayhis salam, but the first messenger was no and he Salah, Allah says we sent the first messenger to his people. And his message was them was his message to them was worship one Allah, there is no one worthy of worship besides Him. And this is the article of faith with you and I reside La ilaha illa Allah meaning lemme Abu Dhabi happen in llama, meaning there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah.
Right. And as I said, don't be confused here. We're not saying these three, two sheets, this is tawheed in its entirety, It comprises of these three aspects. And each aspect necessitates the other and each aspect comprises of the other. But this breakdown that the scholars have done for us, was to teach us the reality of the heat. And why the porridge was sent a prophet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he didn't come and say and speak about these categories. Some people have an argument against speaking about to heat this way. They say this is a type of innovation Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, nor the companions, none of them said this rubia and this Ulu here and
this smile was in fact, we say yes, they didn't. They invited towards Allah. But when they invited towards Allah that dour comprised of these three elements, the reason why the scholars have highlighted these three elements is for you and I, who are not prolific in the Arabic language, who never lived during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam who did not have a wholesome understanding of the Sharia, for you and I not to go astray for you and I to be complete in our understanding of to eat so this is not an innovation. This is to facilitate what's necessary, just like inshallah, inshallah we have for it of Salah you have soon and of Salah, right? We have the
dust in wuzhou, we know we have the compulsory parts of the zoo, then the sooner parts of buzu, did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, come and say, the four compulsory parts of Voodoo, as are the six compulsory parts of this depending on
the math habits you follow. And then the son of Voodoo is this. And then the nephew of who is this know that the scar has broken down for us to make it easier for us to comprehend. So that when we miss out something we know exactly what we've left out. As for the companions who lived revelation, they knew because of their prolific nature and abilities with the Arabic language they could differentiate between a compulsory
between revelation that denoted something compulsory, and revelation which denoted something recommended, but you and I did not and Islam was for the whole world. It wasn't just for the Arabs. So Allah inspired the scholars to come up with these detail to make matters easy, they will not creating an innovation or a bidder when the scholars explained the elements of tawheed or what tawheed entails. It was the same way they explained the elements of sada and what Salah intense and nobody says it's a bit hard to say that the pillar of Salah is this and the worship of Salah is that and the Sunnah of Salah is that in the same way, just as that isn't a bit this is not a bitter in
any case. This shouldn't be something that makes the hearts differ. Right? Right hamdulillah we have an international audience and martial Australia's international look at the people Mashallah cosmopolitan community we we must say that when we differ, the heart should not differ and not every difference of opinion.
is a difference of opinion worthy of being considered, we must understand this as well as our scholars used to say, when a circolo heylife in JAMA, taborn Ola kyndall halophila. Who have been mean and nobody, this is what the scholars used to say, Allahu Allah him that not every difference of opinion is a difference of opinion worth of considering. The only difference of opinion you really consider is differences of opinion based on substantial evidence where this party has substantial evidence, and this party has substantial evidence as well. Right. So, this is a robo via and this is Aloha, what is the heat or
the unity of one's belief in our last names and attributes? What is this, this refers to brothers and sisters, not attributing a law's qualities to any of his creation, and not giving a creation any of the name specific to Allah subhanho wa Taala like Allah, like a rub, like a rock man. Right?
The name specific to Allah.
I'm not denying the names of Allah and not denying the attributes of Allah.
This is what it refers to when we say unity, in terms of one's belief in Allah names and qualities, we know that we have a group of people
may Allah showered upon them guidance. They say that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is what they say. However,
they say he is present and seeing
right? They say he is present and see we say that this is a type of ship.
This is a type of ship you've given an attribute of Allah, an attribute of Allah, the attribute of Allah being all away and all seeing Albacete, you've given it to a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala did not give him this, right. So we need this is why the scholars bring to us these three components of the heat in this clarity. So we are wary and we make sure in every circumstance with regards to the Lordship of Allah, we are safe with regards to belief in the unity of the unity of Allah worshipped subhanho wa Taala. We say we don't attribute any partners with him. With regards to this to his names and attributes. We do not do anything
that contradicts the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with his names and attributes as well, right. So this lesson is important. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to fix the issues that they had with the Rabu BIA and he went to also to invite them towards tawheed and Olivia worshiping one Allah subhanho wa Taala and verify from the names of Allah is a had gone who Allahu Allah had Allah is the one and you should teach your children this My dear brothers and sisters the reason why I'm saying it is I'm having great fun with my little son Abdullah and it's fun the way he learns the names and the way he reads the bacteria. It's amazing
and how his Subhanallah you teach a name and a child's mind is amazing how he starts analyzing this name and how he uses this name sometimes in in a different circumstance in a different circumstance because Allah can see everything in his
right wing sure you said you bind me that to you you're gonna buy it you know?
Right? Because Allah is a Samir he hears everything he heard you he said
you should teach your children about Allah subhanho wa Taala and teach them about Allah using his names and attributes.
teach them about Allah using his names and attributes and don't feel that they don't understand they have a great image they have brain can comprehend the unseen better than adults. Think about it.
How many people have children here
Masha Allah, may Allah marry those who don't get get those who don't married inshallah. And we Allah bless you with children inshallah. And those who are married and waiting children, may Allah grant your children sooner rather than later. I mean, how many have had their children have imaginary friends?
literally is obviously it's imaginary but to them the friend is here and they give them names even my little Abdullah he has two imaginary friends. One is very naughty and one is very good.
It's absolutely amazing. Whenever something naughty happens, he blames the naughty one without fail. Without fail. He will never mentioned he and his name. The one is named amoun. I don't know where the name came from. Among which language that is, and one is called Becky.
And Becky Amon is the good friend. Becky is the naughty friend. When something happens says
It's his fault he has if he's not sleeping as big as not letting me sleep, I'm trying to I'm only sleeping back. He's not letting me sleep.
We have great fun with it even I have fun with him. You know now we traveled from from Saudi Arabia to Zimbabwe for the summer break. So when we were leaving, I told him I said, Abdullah, we're going to Zimbabwe says yes.
I said, whose house are we going to? He says, we're going to
his grandfather's house, my dad's house. I said, Yes. I said your bags are packed. He said, Yes. I said, What about me and Becky started thinking
he says no, this thing here
when I when I got into the plane, he said, so we're going to Zimbabwe No, we're going to Dubai first. is why we went to Dubai. I said because the plane that goes to Zimbabwe we have to catch it from Dubai. Because Okay, I get it. I get it. I get it. He goes on and backhand they're going to cut up.
I said why the cutter he says they playing that goes to Zimbabwe some pattern.
May Allah preserve our children in his obedience? I mean, so they have any imagination. You tell them about a Marvel license strange to them. It's not strange to them. teach them about Allah never feel they're too small and teach them also about shape. I never feel that too small to know. Tell them Shere Khan is bad. Yahuwah he said, I'm trained his young boy use of Allah. He said, I'm about Chopin, at a very young age.
When a user was abducted as a young boy, but before he was abducted, jacoba he said, I'm taught him in the shape on insanity. I do a movie that indeed shavon is a clear enemy to insan to mankind. teach them about shavon in any case
tauheed or Robo BIA? Why did the Quraysh except that there's a Rob but they didn't accept that he is the only one worthy of worship Why?
I found an amazing explanation by *hole Islam, even taymiyah to lie
about this point.
gather us with our scholars
in Jeddah with the Imams mm hmm Abu hanifa Imam Malik Imam Shafi Imam, Ahmed and all the scholars, the students of the Imams, Rahmatullah hemiola gathers with them in general Ly, we've benefited from them, and we we read their works, and we love them and can't wait to meet them. Even Timmy hashmatullah here and he says, look, the term Rob, this is one of the names of Allah. This term Rob has multitudes of meanings, and that's why it's one of the great names of Allah. It's been used in the Quran hundreds of times, the only name
used more than Rob is the name of Allah. And that's what the scholars say, The Greatest Name of Allah is Allah, there's some difference of opinion. But the majority say the Greatest Name is Allah. Rob, is also one of the great names of Allah. Why? Because this name entails several other meanings of the other names of Allah. One of the meanings of Rob is the one who protects you and nurtures you to perfection to completion.
And that is why if you look at a lot of the applications, it's Yeah, Rob robina robina robina, right. Allah subhanahu Allah tells us about the two out of the prophets and they were always saying or be or be fairly well, usually they are probably fairly well
Matic Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he taught us the best of Estefan Allahumma Antara B La Ilaha Illa and Mr. murghab is used by all the MBR and he was salatu wa sallam, Yusuf Alayhi Salam when he was seeking protection from the females who are enticing him towards Xena he said Rob besieging. Oh, my Robbie tend to is Rob. Right.
This term Rob was used by the the the MBR. And he was salatu wa salam and it was used by the pious worshipers of Allah, who Allah subhanho wa Taala praised, for example, indeed, in the differences of the night and the day,
the raffle lady when, in the summer, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth was the lay of the land. And in the differences of the night and day, and we know there's differences, some nights are long, and some nights are short, some nights are hot, and some nights are cold. Some nights
are loud with war.
law protecting our brothers and sisters. I mean, and some nights are
peaceful, but security, there's differences in the nights and the day. Allah says in all of this assigns for those of understanding Allah praises the people of understanding who are the people of understanding your Allah
Allah tells us a lot assays and Levy, Guru are happy
to be him.
Kuru nafi Lucas sama yt. When
Allah says these people of understanding are those who remember Allah pm and standing work for Odin while sitting where Allah juubi him and on their sides with a karoon and they ponder and reflect over the creation of the heavens and the earth.
What does this rabada do to them? This is a bad reflecting is a bad What does it do to them? It inspires them and it grows they all have Allah subhanho wa Taala thus they feel this overwhelming need to exalt Allah. So they say Habana muffaletta heard about Ella Rob. They say Oh our Lord indeed you did not create this in falsehood. They start making dua and do and do our first they say Glory be to You protect us from the Hellfire then what do they say? Oh para.
Una de una de Imani and me will be Robbie confirm and
fulfill Anna Zulu been our coffee Rhonda Tina what often alibre Robin? Tina, Mel what can i what i took scenario multi Emma in Nicola takafumi. Add, Rob. Rob. Rob. Rob. Right. We don't have time to go into the meanings but revise it. I've given you. Its placement just before Surah Nisa
a page before Surah Nisa.
So they call unto Allah saying, Rob, Rob. Rob, what does Allah say to them, faster jab Allah
Subhana Allah, Allah says, thus they are, responded to them, and answered them Subhana Allah and gave them the glad tidings that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in this ayah. So this term murghab has a specific presence and placement in the life of a human being.
Because the human being is designed to survive.
He's designed to survive. And Rob refers to the one who protects you and nurtures you to completion. So shareholders love even taymiyah says it wasn't abnormal for them to accept this. It was part and parcel of what they have been designed to do, which is to survive. their desire to survive necessitated them accepting the presence of a supreme being who they can turn to for protection and who nurtures them to completion. So how neurobiol Anna, what a deeper understanding of why he went, when I read this, it's like Mr. Ismail said knockout punch, it was a knockout punch for Allah Subhana Allah Look at this, this article of this man, right? Look at the brain of this person to
actually deduce this and grow and enhance our understanding of the term Rob So this was not a strange for the Quraysh they need to survive in their in in you know, insane, insane has its issues and weaknesses. In science, it says need to survive was fog in sand felt that his need to survive was far greater than his need to worship one hour so he accepted the Ruby of Allah and never necessarily accepted that.
If only inside knew that survival can only be when you worship one Allah subhanho
wa Taala gathers together to discuss to hit in greater detail in this day and age brothers and sisters, do we have issues in the Ruby of Allah? Yes, we don't prostrate to anyone but Allah and inshallah we don't ask anyone but Allah. We don't ask any saint we don't ask any person who's passed away. And we don't claim people to be saints before the day of care.
This is not from from the practice of Islam. And if you look at the sources even of those before us, it's it's it's not from their practice. It's not from the teachings of the prophets, because the Jews and the Christians to believe in the day of judgment and when they claim people to be saints, this is a contradiction not so that you claim in someone to be from Paradise.
Before the Day of Judgment, this is a contradiction.
But in terms of Islam as well, people say this saint and that said, we say only Allah knows who are the saints from the nonsense, right? Nobody knows.
He liked that term. menza
I didn't say nonsense.
But you caught on. Mashallah. Mashallah, you guys? Why are you so slow, man? Come on. You're not fasting right now. Are you?
So we don't ask
People who've passed away we ask only Allah subhanho wa Taala so inshallah we have no issues Asia Allah, Allah here but do we have issues with Ruby? Yeah. With our two hidden the Lordship of Allah. There are certain elements that need to be corrected in our societies My dear brothers and sisters they are. How many times do we hear people attribute success to themselves? How many times how many times have people attribute financial success to themselves and not recognized Allah attributed educational success to themselves and not recognized Allah attributed success in their work and success in their play to themselves and not recognized Allah? How many times have they attributed
success in the spouses that they're married to themselves? It's my handsomeness my qualities that she wanted to marry me or the female will say, having realized to have a line of people who wanted to marry me, we deny Allah subhanho wa Taala in the process, how many times do we attribute the success of our material well being to ourselves and deny Allah subhanho wa Taala How many times do we hear a person say it's I I, I put food on my table. I put food on my table. It is my earning. It is my hard work. It was my idea that got this deal. It was my doing that cause the success? How many times do we hear people say that this is dangerous, my dear brothers and sisters. This shows a type
of form of weakness. In terms of your toe hidden boo boo boo, yeah. When you say Allah is the Lord, how can you attribute anything to yourself? When Rob refers to the one who nurtures you to completion, the perfection you have is not from yourself. It's from the one who nurtured you. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah or Buddha, Allah, Allah.
And I had a solid, a solid, the one upon who everything in creation is dependent upon Allah The Lamia amulet. Allah subhanho wa Taala How can we say this? Right? So we need to take heed my dear brothers and sisters never ever attribute anything to yourself. Your complete belief in Allah necessitates and dictates that you acknowledge Allah subhanho wa Taala. Praise be to Allah who blessed me with these eight stars in my exams. All Praise be to Allah who blessed me with the ability to study. All Praise be to Allah who increase my knowledge, All Praise be to Allah who decreed upon me sustenance, who opened the hearts of the people to accept my idea for this duty go
through all praise be to Allah All Praise be to Allah All Praise be to Allah Subhana who attack me Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding. I mean, we need to take heed my dear brothers and sisters,
Allah He discussing these things you can go on and on talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala and in this blessed month,
but we must move on.
The incident from the life of a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I wanted to discuss with you today was as I said yesterday, the issue or the incident where his chest was opened from Allahu alayhi wa sallam but this lesson needs to have a we need to discuss a few things before it. And in my preparation of the lesson today, I saw that it wouldn't be possible for us to discuss the opening of the chest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we'll postpone that to another session with the light Allah. What I want to discuss with you today because it's necessary before we get to that incident is the incident related to the birth of our beloved Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam
and the practice of the Arabs related to fostering and then in sha Allah. If Allah gives us life and brings us together we will discuss the opening of his chest Phil Allahu alayhi wa sallam and what you and I can learn from it in sha Allah with regards to the birth of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Alma polyp, even Abdulmutallab one of the sons of Abdulmutallab
who was the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he married Amina, he married me and I've been to a hab. This was the mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, obviously, this is a summary so we can go into the lessons right after he married her. He went on a journey, he joined one of the caravans that would travel for trade to a place called hersa. In this region known or the famous region known as Sham, which covers a few countries today.
And he went for the purposes of trade as well. Now on the way back from this journey, he became ill and when he became ill, he decided to go to his
maternal uncles in Medina and rest over there so that he could recover and then make his journey back to to Makkah
So, he went to his maternal uncle john has been in a job and Allah decreed that he passed away. So that's where he passed away and that is where he was buried in Medina.
Now, at this point sola sallahu alayhi wa sallam was still in the womb of his mother.
He wasn't born yet.
Which means that when he eventually was born, he was born as an orphan, as an orphan, and this is what was referred to by Allah subhanho wa Taala. When he said in Surah
Surah two Guha, lm eg deca, yet he meant Our Allah says do not find you an orphan. Right? So Allah or when Allah subhanho wa Taala
mentions this is referring to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being born as an orphan
because his father passed away before he was born, and there's a lesson we will take from this and we'll share with it inshallah.
Now, the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to have passed away at the age of 25. Now with the birth of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, or the, the timing of the birth, the actual date of the birth is no dispute that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born on a Monday, no scholar disputes this fact, because he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this, he said in the Hadith reported in Sahih, Muslim by Mr. Muslim, that he was born on a Monday and that revelation came to him on a Monday as well. And that is why he also used to fast or he would foster Monday and he would say that this was the day that I was born. So there's no dispute amongst the scholars that
the day he was born was a Monday. Now
with regards to the place of him being born, then according to the correct opinion,
and this is the opinion of the majority Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born in Mecca, Mecca.
In terms of Mecca, some of the scholars said he was born in an establishment belonging to bamboo Hashem, and some said he was born in an establishment close to mount Safa. So there's two views of the historians and the scholars regarding the place of birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the actual place where he was born. Now, when he was being delivered,
a mother of a famous companion, he later became a famous companion. His mother was the midwife and she facilitated the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this was the mother of man, Ivanov, robiola, who,
with regards to the month of his birth, even Kathy, the famous scholar and the famous Professor explained off the Quran and the famous Muhammad did. He was a scholar of Hadith as well. And he was a famous historian as well. He's got an amazing book called I'll be there when we hire he discusses everything from the beginning, till the end, the beginning and the end. I'll be there when we hire even caniell Rahim Allah, he mentions in his book, I'll be the only hire that with regards to the month of birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Then some of the scholars said he was born in the month of Ramadan. Some said he was born in the month of Ramadan, whilst the vast majority
said he was born in the month of our probeer alone.
And he himself when he quotes this view of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam being born in Ramadan, he doesn't support the view. He says, this is a questionable view. The scholars who say he was born in Ramadan, they say, Well, we know he became a prophet at the age of 40. And
he became a prophet in the month of Ramadan, which means that he must have been born in Ramadan but this this is this is not. I mean, anyone knows that a year compiles off. I mean, when you 40 years old, you're not 40 years old, only in one month, you're 40 years old for the course of the year. Right. So for them saying he was 14 when he became a prophet, and he became a prophet in the month of Ramadan means he was born in Ramadan. There is no correlation. There's no correlation here. Because you could have been born in another month of the year. And the majority of the scholars say that he was born in Nairobi alone. As for the actual day date, the actual date of birth, the
was many views. Some say he was born on the second Bulova, some say the eighth of rubella, some say the ninth of Roberto one, some say the 10th of your own, some say between
I have reviewed our Some say the 17th of review and our and some even say the 22nd of reviewing our and they all have their evidences that they have used to substantiate their views, no doubt. The common view, as we see today amongst people is the 12th of February. Oh, well, but the point to note is, there's no conclusive evidence.
And you can see a plethora of views of the scholars that have cited for you. So with regards to the date of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. His birth we don't know, the day we know, the month we know the year we know the year we discussed yesterday, the year of the elephants, the month Riviera one, the day Monday the date, we don't know. And perhaps this was wisdom from Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep this hidden, because also we learn from this brothers and sisters and this is supposed to be taken in the benefits section but we can say this now. The fact that there's no conclusive evidence regarding the actual date means there's no significant worship of Allah subhanho
wa Taala associated with the birth date of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Aloma Dena was meant to any one of these will occur Islam Medina, Allah revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
during the farewell Hajj, Aloma according to lacantina calm the deen is complete. If there was any act of worship related to the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there will be no difference of opinion. Regarding the date of birth of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam, it would have been manifestly clear, with evidence as clear as the sun.
Now, when he was born, Amina sent him to his grandfather, Abdul Mutallab and took him into the cabin. And
then, on the seventh day, slaughtered and he did a slaughter and he invited the courage to partake of the meal. Nowadays, we say Africa, right? So understand that Islam came to perfect, the most noble of characters. Right? Right things which were the things which were acceptable we see Islam, either not speaking about it, meaning it's permissible or actually
revealing evidence that cite it as a means of worship like that the sky is a means of worship. The author is a means of worship. On the seventh day he slotted and in fact, the flourish when this meal happened, they asked him they said, What have you named him? So he said, I've named him Mohamed. Now, obviously, this name was strange. This name was strange to the courage.
And they said, Why have you named him Mohammed? He said, with the hope that he will be praiseworthy in the heavens and on earth. So hon Allah, Allah inspires, Allah inspires women he was when he was
right. This named Mohammed was not famous at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu in this Peninsula, and at that time, except with a few people, and it is said that those few people who were named Mohammed by their parents were named Mohammed because people heard that there's a profit coming whose name will be Mohammed.
And subhana wa lukau, Allah protected the prophethood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because we have no mentioned that any of those Mohammed's actually to claim to profited, nobody to claim to profited. And interviewers who would then when they when they would see the persecution, the courage was, was afflicting on those who said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah and accepted the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his prophecy. Even casier says in his writings, that Allah subhanho wa Taala protected the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam by preventing any of the other Muhammad from announcing any claims to prophecy, right? Now,
there's many points that we can learn just from our discussion surrounding the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is the essence of our time together. Because we talking about a Syrah understanding this year. We want to understand it in this century.
Seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala as assistance I say, firstly, we learn what we just said, the date of birth is disputed.
So they can know so no one can confidently say there's any act of worship attributed to the birth day of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
That's the first thing and then the evidence for this is the many dates cited by the scholars and had they actually had actually been an act of worship Allah would have released to us the actual date of his birth sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Secondly, brothers and sisters will end
a person is called an orphan if their father passes away, even if their mother is alive, this is what we learned in the Sharia. This is the definition of an orphan because Allah said lm yejide karate man, Allah called me yet he called him an orphan even though his mother was alive, but his father had passed away. Understand this, right? If you want to assist orphans and you're trying to understand who is an orphan, an orphan is also one who has lost his or her father, before this person was born or after this person was born before this person reaches the age of puberty, an orphan is no more considered an orphan, when they reach the age of puberty, even in the Islamic
rulings, many rulings of the orphans
are set till the age the orphan reaches the age of puberty when they reach the age of puberty and they have abilities with wealth for example, the wealth should be given back to them and so on and so forth.
We also learn from how Allah subhanho wa Taala caused him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be born after his father passed away, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not just any often, but are often in the most complete form of the term of. So this is wisdom from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah decreed this, right? The most complete often is the one who's born before after his father passes away.
Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve our parents in his obedience, I mean, and for those who have passed away May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant and graves that are gardens from the gardens of Jenga, and May Allah unite us with them underneath his outfit on the day of Tiana And may Allah gather us with them in the highest general here those Allah Allah, I mean, Europe Allah, Allah me.
Our scholars Rahmatullah here Allah him say
that when we look at the actual birth of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, we see how Allah nurtured him to be a prophet from the first breath he took in this life,
because him being born this way,
allowed him to live a life different
to others, being born as a perfect orphan, right? He was born in very unique circumstances, right? And
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam growing up without a father allowed him to develop a form of sensitivity, a form of sensitivity, and is that our, we see how sensitive he was sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the people, how he made excuses for the people he had an under he had life experience from the first breath that he took, because will lie. Nobody knows how it is to grow up without a father except the person who's grown up without a father.
Nobody knows. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the first breath was experiencing life without a father. So this nurtured him in a specific way.
Right, and gave him specific qualities. Allah was preparing him to be a prophet, before he was born. And I was calling say, we learn from this how Allah protected His Prophet hood as well.
From the first breath he took, why, because no one could
slander him and accuse him of coming up with a message which he took from his father.
And nobody did this. Nobody could do this. Nobody could say your message is from your, it's from your father, your father brought up talk to you just come with, with what something is relayed to you. There's no significance
to this, right. But they couldn't, they couldn't stand him with anything. He was attributing it to Allah and he didn't have a father and he was born without a father. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, protected him as a prophet nurtured him to be a prophet. Right? We know from from the first breath to 40 he was being nurtured, he he was also attending to the he was a shepherd as well, this nurtures you a shepherd of sheep. So Pamela, a shepherd of sheep is different than the one who has camels and the one who has other animals. Right? And, and if you've you know, Mashallah, I have some friends who, who come from the farmlands in Saudi Arabia and they have camels and so on and so
forth. And then tell you amazing things of the differences. You know, the qualities you need to be to herd sheep, I haven't done it Allahu Allah. Mashallah, Australia, a lot of farmlands. Maybe we have some farmers here, you know, better anybody. Farmer here. Now, with the middle of the city. The farmers are far away.
They say they say when you herd sheep and goats and so on and so forth a different, different experience than cameras in Oregon.
gets lost. It doesn't affect you, because it can protect itself. A sheep gets lost you worried, you go running after it, you concerned about it, this flock doesn't belong to you, you'll be answerable to the owner and you know any delay, every second delayed have made the chance of the sheep being killed by a wolf or something even greater.
Right? Every second counts, it changes your whole perspective. And even the the nature that it gives you a soft nature because the way they the sounds that they make and so on and so forth and the way that they behave, right, it changes you as a person. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was nurtured for prophecy. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, la caja Kamara, tsunami and physical indeed there has come to a messenger from you.
He eats like you he drinks like you he marries like you he sleeps like you he gets tired. He gets ill from you a messenger as he isn't a lazy man and he is affected by that which affects you on the level and
you have a problem. He's having a sleepless night.
SubhanAllah Allah, as he is an early Hema editor. Hurry is when he has extreme care for you. Extreme concern for you.
Meaning or for him, but the believers his roof and Rahim, his soft and kind hearted and kind nature, Allahu Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala protected his prophethood.
And Allah nurtured him as well from the first breath that he took by decreeing that he be born without a father.
From the lessons we also land, my dear brothers and sisters and my dear mothers and fathers. motherhood is from the greatest gifts that a child can have.
Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Allah decreed that he be with his mother for the earliest years of his life.
And think about this, my dear brothers and sisters, because I'm introducing this lesson here. This is not strange. This is not strange, right? This is not strange. Look at his Marina and his Salah.
Allah commanded that he be left in the barren land with who was his mother.
Look at Musa alayhis salam.
Allah decreed that he be returned to
his mother. Look at Lisa and he said
he was born and he didn't have a father. Subhan Allah, motherhood, the greatest gift, we see Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, the greatest gift a child can have. Right? And what will make us understand motherhood and what will make us understand the Mac magnanimous nature
of being a homemaker.
The greatest that walked this earth My dear mothers and sisters, the greatest that walked this earth have had mothers who brought them up to be great. They weren't great just like that. They had mothers who brought them up to be great. Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be with his mother, in the earliest years of his life. sallallahu alayhi wasallam Now don't get me wrong, my dear.
Attendees, I'm not belittling the role of being a father in any way or form. And the fathers are smiling. Here's your hamdulillah we made a plan and plan our trips and our holidays. Now we don't have to be around. The prophets were raised by mothers. No, you the impact of a father is great. Don't Don't mistake me here and even when we look at the prophets like Musa alayhis salam Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Musa alayhis salam was brought up under the care of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so he said, he Salam and Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he's married and he Salah, and so on and so forth. A father figure is important in the life of a child. And yes, my
father's you need to man up, you need to change diapers, you need to also feed your to your children, because this way, you know, I know we say it's the role of the mother and yes, the mother it is her role, but it's also your own in some way. Why? So that you break any barrier between your child and you. You see children are more closer to the mother. Why? Because the father is is not there to do the intimate things. So once we're not saying do it every day, what we say is some days, break the barrier to the bridge one day, feed your child one day, change his nappy or her nappy and you'll see how much fun they will have. And tomorrow when they have an issue. And the mother is not
around. They won't choose to remain isolated from you as a father, you get what I'm saying. It's important to
The focus of our discussion is mothers. Today, my dear mothers and sisters and fathers and brothers, we live in an age where Subhanallah the eloquence and elegance and excellence of motherhood has been sucked out of the word today who wants to be called the mother or homemaker? You know, when your child gets born, you get a birth certificate. Some countries they asked you occupation.
What's the occupation of the of the father? Father's thinking of? How can I better my qualification? So you know, when my son looks at his certificate, he's gonna say, wow, this is my dad. What about the mother? homemaker housewife? My No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Put the teacher maybe
domestic engineer, domestic engineer? Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no. Why don't you put Minister of Interior. This is powerful. This is powerful. Whatever the case, whatever the case level, we say Milan Lucia had to finish dilihat. names and titles mean nothing. It's the reality that counts is the reality that counts. Right? Being a mother, my dear brothers and sisters,
is the greatest qualification you can have by Allah it is
an island like to call our mother's trim tabs. trim tabs, you know what a trim tab is? A trim tab is the small rudder on the Titanic that needs to turn. So the big rudder of the Titanic can turn which needs to turn. So this mighty ship can turn. So Pamela, she's a trim tab.
Right? If she doesn't do what she does, she can not nurture the big rudder that can do what he needs to do or she needs to do to cause a fundamental shift in the world to impact this world in a great way. Look at him America, Hema, Hola, Mr. Malik had a mother. She was a trim tab. She was she brought him up, Rahim Allah.
And he took him to the teacher of Eman Malik and she said to him, teach him manners before you teach him knowledge. So hamama today, which mother does that? By the way? He's the chef. You know, the chef knows no, no, no. You the chef, but I'm the chef. Right? Are you the chef around the bigger chef, I'm telling you what to do. This is my son is my responsibility, teaching manners before you teach him knowledge, who was in my medic? Did Mr. Malik not instigate a fundamental shift in this life? Of course he did. his contribution to fick does never can never go unnoticed.
But he caused the ship to turn being a rudder but him as a red attend when the trim tab or the small red attend. And that was his mother doing what she needed to do. Think of this, my dear mothers who are listening very attentively, and my dear sisters who insha Allah one day will become mothers. And again, I'm not saying you should be locked up in a glass box. As a mother. I'm not saying you shouldn't excel in education. I'm not saying you shouldn't excel in your fields of speciality and concentration. No, I am saying prioritize.
When you list your greatest achievements, make sure motherhood is at the top before you being a chartered accountant or being a flamboyant lawyer or being an amazing engineer, list motherhood as your greatest achievement because Islam has given it great weight. And we know this, my dear mothers, we know that Islam has taught us that the greatest right
upon a child is to respect his mother or her mother, before the Father.
When the person went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said who has a greater right of my care and my concern and my respect, he said your mother, then who? Your mother, then who? Your mother, it didn't come for free. My dear brothers and sisters, it came because of the elegance that Islam has placed in motherhood and you being a mother and Islam recognizing your contribution. Nova subhanho wa Taala bring about bring about a great understanding
of given a red card and I say this every day, but people fail to realize we started this lesson late. Well,
just a couple of minutes and we'll end a couple of minutes which we asked a lot to put Baraka in. So it becomes five in Sharma
you know, we have elective roles and we have mandatory roles anybody who studies management knows this. We have elective roles and mandatory roles. Mandatory roles are those roles which you cannot give up they are God given roles to you. elective roles are those roles which you choose to assign
You your degree, your qualification, your job title, your mandatary role is you being a mother?
How sad is it today that we've switched priorities? And we've given excellence and attention to elective roles over mandatory roles. Isn't that? Isn't that a contradiction? Isn't this something strange? Doesn't this go against common sense? Right? So this is the lesson that we learn, my dear
mothers and my dear sisters from the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And how Allah subhanho wa Taala left him in the care of his mother.
From a young age.
We also learn and this is the last lesson the importance
of we learn my dear brothers and sisters, that being an orphan is not weakness.
It's what we learn from the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Being an orphan is not a problem. Being an orphan is not weakness, will lie. It's not for the greatest men who have walked the face of this earth was an orphan, Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you and I need to change our perspective of orphans are not and stop seeing them as a problem that needs a solution. Rather we should see them as the solution, we should see them as part of as as probably greater elements of society given our respect for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And for those here in the audience who Mashallah have access to orphans, please take this message to them.
That by Allah you are not weak. By Allah you are strong. weakness is not in being born to one parent or being born to lone parents and strength is not in being born to two parents are being born to one parent strength is in belief in one Allah subhanho wa Taala and following the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam do me this favor for those who Masha Allah have access to orphans visit
institutions that look after orphans, and take this message from me to them from the bottom of my heart. We should also learn from this My dear brothers and sisters, how elegant it is to look after an orphan. You know, our love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should at least create within us a feeling that we would like to adopt an orphan like to look after an orphan, especially in Muslim minorities, we often are being brought up by non Muslims. We're not saying they're not doing a great job they are and we thank them for it because the Muslims are not stepping up. So we have to offer gratitude to the non Muslims who take Muslim children into their homes and raise them
right we at least should make an effort to go to them and visit them and teach them you know that this is Ramadan fasting happens at least this past this caretaker, this character who's a non Muslim, let's try and help the orphan if we can't look after the orphan, let's try and assist the process. Go visit the carer and explain to them that you know what this is Ramadan. these are these are some of the practices in Ramadan. If you wake up the child at this time, if you allow them to break fast at this time, this is the deal of aid, take some new clothes give it to the carer so they can present so also they can feel that they were brought up upon the values of Islam, our learning
of the Sierra, our knowledge of the fact that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam should instigate within us
sensitivity towards orphans. If we don't have the if we're not engineered, let me not say that. But what I'm saying is, you know engineering in terms of society, society makes things taboo to us look at today, marrying a widow. This is something difficult for the oma right? This is something difficult this is something that needs our attention as well, but it society has brought us up upon a parallel whereby we don't feel we have the strength to adopt an orphan and bring up an orphan. Don't close the door totally. Man Are you drunk? Ooh la la you do that which cannot be done in its entirety should not be left out in its entirety. On your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do it
for your for for this love that you have for him and the fact that he was an orphan and the fact that he taught us the greatest rewards that Allah has. For the one who takes care of an orphan. and donate help institutions that look after them. Or you yourself find the character who's looking after one and offer you advice. Offer your support, offer your gifts. Offer a voice.
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding Much has been said just from the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yeah, Allah what follows.
You have to tune in tomorrow. And in the nights to come everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect. And any mistakes are for myself and she upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala is forgiveness Subhana Allah He will be handy. So Nicola Homer we have the connection to Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to Lake wa salam o Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
